Nothing is more rewarding then being recognized by your peers for hard work and dedication to your profession.
Dan Farley, from the Bureau of Maintenance and Operations' Highway Safety and Traffic Operations Division, was recently recognized by the Intelligent Transportation Society of Pennsylvania as Person of the Year for his role in championing and advancing transportation operations in Pennsylvania. As the department evolves and elevates the importance of traffic operations, Farley's responsibilities play a key role in its growth. Programs under his purview include: Green Light-Go and Automated Red Light Enforcement (ARLE) programs, which have a dramatic impact on distributing millions of dollars to PennDOT districts and local municipalities for improved efficiency and safety, primarily at signalized integrations.
Farley also plays a key role in the department's Connected and Automated Vehicles Program, I-76 Multi-Modal Corridor Management Project, Traffic Signal Asset Management System, Traffic Signal Performance Metrics Research, and work zones.
He was presented with the award in front of over 700 of his peers at the Penn State Traffic and Engineering Safety Conference in December.
